Having an arrest or conviction on your record can affect your life in many negative ways. For example, potential employers who perform background checks and find this information may choose not to hire you. Furthermore, some employers are performing background checks on existing employees, which could cause you to miss out on a promotion or even lose your job.
Every arrest or conviction you receive can appear on your record. In fact, the New Jersey state police maintain a database containing all of this information, and they pass this data on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. When your data goes to the FBI, your convictions and arrests can follow you even if you move out of New Jersey.
Contrary to popular belief, convictions and other negative data are not automatically removed from your record over time. In order to erase even a minor conviction, you must have it expunged from your record. Expungement is a legal process that involves eliminating something negative, such as a conviction or arrest, from your permanent record. With this information off your record, you can apply for jobs with confidence and you can go to work without worrying that your employer will perform a background check and suddenly start treating you differently.
